Celebrity Copycat: Kate Hudson’s Look for Less!

May 13, 2014 by  
Filed under Celebrity Copycat

Kate Hudson always looks so chic and it’s never too forced or overly trendy. In this look she gives a a lace top a sexy look by showing off her pretty bra and then paired the top with fun polka dot pants. I chose HM polka dot set that’s perfect for hot summer days where you can wear alone with the camisole and sandals.

A Touch of Summer in The Spring

April 10, 2014 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

The weather is starting to  feel what most people would consider a normal summer day but for Floridians its still spring becuase it’s still not inhumanely hot.  Most days it’s in the low 80s and a cold front pops up maybe twice a month bringing the weather down to normal spring temps but it doesn’t really matter down here.  Once March rolls aorund the daisy dukes come out in full force and the wife beaters are sold by the dozen (I’m not kidding about the wife beaters – I tried to buy my teenager a pack for his MMA class and there was only 2 packs left in white at Target lol). Anyway it doesn’t leave much room for layering but it does give for some fun styling. You can pair a trench with denim shorts, pack a cardigan to the beach or wear your bikini under a linen blazer for a night on the beach.  Its a laid back style that you can’t really wear all year round anywhere else.

What’s spring without a trench?  While most people have a trench hanging in there closet, it’s usually beige, black or white.  But this season is all about going bold!  Consider trying a fun and bright trench that will really stand out in the crowd. Tip:  go light when buying a trench that way you can get tons of wear out of it by styling it more as a blazer.

 

Orange Trench Coat – $60

This bright orange trench would look perfect over stripes or florals.

Sky Blue Trench Coat – $155

A baby blue trench screams spring and would sweeten a pair of leather leggings.

 

Double Breasted Trench Coat – $122

Try a yellow double breasted trench like Olivia Palermo and Zoe Saldana.

Faux Leather Panel Trench Coat – $65

This trench isn’t exactly bright but it’s got  so much style it doesnt need it!  Pair it with a white tank and boyfriend jeans and you’re good to go!

Men’s Coats: Get Spring Covered

April 6, 2013 by  
Filed under Boys on the Side

You may not be wrapping up in layers and padded parkas, but spring still requires outerwear. Here’s a quick guide to the new season’s best cover ups – from the styles to track down to the shades to seek out, you’re sure to meet your match.

Metallic Madness

Shine is in! You don’t have to go all-out Quality Street-style by taking the offerings of designers like Lanvin and Christopher Raeburn as gospel, but don’t shy away from this trend on an unwearability basis; why not try a bomber jacket with metallic sleeves, for example? Not only will you be hitting two trends in one, but this will have enough more traditional fabric to ensure you feel comfortable in it, but with just the right amount of metallic material to pay proper tribute to the trend.

Nicely Nautical

The designers return to it year on year, but with sharp colours, smart/casual appeal and more than a small dose of fun, the nautical trend is worth its reoccurrences. Invest in a navy coat in a light material to give the look a passing nod, or, for a Louis Vuitton-inspired  tailored look, why not opt for a blue or white blazer? They’re more versatile than you’d think; wear with chinos or even tailored shorts for a casual daytime look, and dress it up with a smart shirt and immaculate smart trousers by night.

Come Around To Camo

It may seem a bit ‘surplus army store’ to some of us, but it’s time to embrace this print-tastic trend. For men, military-inspired outerwear is the perfect way to work this – just be sure to keep the rest of your outfit fairly low-key. A heat-friendly light T-shirt and dark jeans are ideal. If you don’t fancy being taken over by the instantly-recognisable smudges of a camo coat, go for a khaki military-style jacket like the one you’ll find here to put a classic spin on this trend.

Men’s Style: Smart Gets Summer-Friendly

April 2, 2013 by  
Filed under Boys on the Side

This greatly-anticipated spring/summer season brings with it a surprise: the reinvention of men’s tailoring into something that is not only suitable for wear on warm sunny days, but something that can be as practical as it is stylish. No sign of tatty flip-flops and ill-advised vests here!

The Full Suit

Ok, so you’re not going to be reaching for that full black or navy number in the summer’s heat, but as Louis Vuitton recently proved with their spring/summer 2013 collection, a checked suit in the right blend of lighter shades can make for a smart but easy to pull off look that won’t leave you looking out of place in the city or strolling through seaside streets.

The secret to the success of the French fashion house’s sublimely tailored collection lies in the accessories: shades are a given but the model also wore neckskarves tied subtly underneath the open collar of shirts and wore watches that were large enough to command attention, yet sturdy enough to say ‘this is daywear, not occasionwear’.

 

The Smart Shirt

The perfect item for summer: it’s lightweight but offers coverage against the sun and is available in all the shades you could want to complete any look, from every summer’s favourite – nautical, to the trend that divides men each time it appears – pastel shades. For an idea of the sheer multiplicity of shirts available out there, take a look at the offerings from Hackett; you’ll soon be pairing a smart shirt with tailored shorts or lightly coloured chinos for a daytime look that gives your style everything it needs for summer.

 

The Summer Savvy Shoes

Boat shoes (also known as deck shoes or loafers) are the stylish man’s best friend for the spring/summer season. They’ll work perfectly with the tailoring that we hope will now define your look, be that shorts or trousers, and since they come in such a range of colours, they’re the ideal way to add an extra splash of personality to your look.

The Year of The Snake

March 29, 2013 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

I’ve always had a thing for snakes. It started back in elementary school when my homeroom teacher Mr. Richardson had his classroom filled with tanks of snakes and we were required to actually feed them mice. Was it gross? Absolutely! But I was one of the very few that liked the snakes… they have this edgy, seductive feel to them that has always appealed to me. I even remember buying a snake thumb ring in middle school that I wore all the way through high school. Fast forward a few year (really just a few) and here we are celebrating the Year of the Snake and I’m still just as intrigued as ever. Check out some of my favorite pieces that incorporate the snake trend from Yesstyle.

Snake Print Blouse and Pants Set – $80  Perfect way to add the snake trend at the office.

Rhinestone Snake Bangle – $22 Love this bangle!

Snake Skin Pattern Necklace – $10.50 This snake pattern necklace will give any of your tops a edgy feel.

Snake Skin Shirt Dress – $108 Pair with ballerina flats and tights for a casual look or sky high heels for a sexier vibe.

Effortless Stripes

March 28, 2013 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds


Stripes are my favorite pattern and I’m always looking for ways to incorporate them into my outfits.  It’s such a classic pattern that will never go out of style and I just love the way it gives outfits an effortless laid back feel.  Best of all stripes are super easy to dress up or down and can be worn as an accent in the form of accessories or even shoes.   During the warmer seasons stripe exude a nautical vibe but it’s such a versatile pattern that it can stand on its own in any season and in any color (although my personal fave is basic black and white).  Famous fashionista’s like Olivia Palermo and Kim Kardashian wear stripes flawlessly year after year but you don’t need to break the bank to wear this trend. Check out some cool striped pieces from Target below and how to incorporate them into your spring wardrobe.  Tip:  When shopping for stripes always keep in mind that the smaller the stripe the smaller you look – and that goes for accessories as well.

A striped linen blazer will give any of your basic favorites a polished look.  Wear over a tank or tee with cut off shorts or jeans.

Striped Linen Blazer – $30 | Denim Shorts – $20 | Graphic Tee – $18 | Quilted Cross Body Bag – $19.99 | Thong Sandals – $19.99

Striped tank tops are a must have for every season and style!  I have probably a dozen in tons of colors and styles and I let them peek out underneath tees, sweaters and jackets.

Stripe Cowl Neck Tank – $14.99 | Pleated Maxi Skirt – $20 | Pullover Shrug – $11 | Laverne Flip Flops – $14.99 | Chiffon Crossbody – $26.99 | Straw Fedora – $12.99

I love me a striped skirt!  A casual “Audrey Hepburn” like piece that’s perfect for spring and summer nights.

Stripe Skirt – $19.99 | Lace Top – $17.99 | Stripe Thong Sandal – $19.99 | Envelope Clutch – $19.99

A striped boat neck sweater is the epitome of spring!  Give it a go with bright skinny jeans and heels.

Stripe Boat Neck Sweater – $22.99 | Colored Skinny Jeans– $22.99 | Button Down – $18 | Pointy Toe Pump – $39.99 | Envelope Clutch – $24.99

This peplum and stripe dress is so chic and flattering (click here to see Kourtney Kardashian in a peplum and stripe outfit).  The peplum can help create curves and flatter those who have them while the thin stripes provide all the style.  Pair with a denim jacket and a colored belt for some extra oomph.

Stripe Peplum Dress – $24.99 | Platform Pumps – $29.99 | Satchel – $29.99

It’s Time for Springtime.
